    "And no one corrects them because they want to f*ck `em."

    Hahaha!


    And btw...I roof in the middle of July...


    But on a serious note, there is no substitute for a loving mother. So to my wife and the mother of my children...I love you, sweetie.

    I agree with him 100%. It`s not EASY but it`s not hard either. Does that make sense?

    You`re saying that relative to what you consider to be hard and easy, being a mother is of intermediate difficulty. It makes sense.

    I can`t relate though, as I`m not a mother. If I was a father I think I`d have some idea, but I`m not that either.

    If a stay at home mom got paid for all that she does, (jobs ranging from housekeeper and day care centre teacher, to van driver, chef, psychologist and chief executive officer) she would make $117,000 a year.

    Sounds like someone is missing a good profit there. But housekeeping, cooking and driving is something you would do anyway. Pychologist wouldn`t be more then kissing a boo boo unless your an aweful Mum. CEO doesn`t sound right, that would be covered by the day care teacher that would have to do that anyway.

    So basicly it is everything you already do but harder with day care teacher chucked in... well I would take that over a oil rig job!

    @ Evil_Eye, I don`t think you quite get it.

    Let`s say if I mom was REALLY lazy, and rather drink by the pool all day, and did NOTHING, to a point where her kids probably don`t even know her. If she were to pay other people to do all that she does, that`s how much she would be spending.
    No one HAS to clean their house. They don`t HAVE to do their own cooking, or solve problems between siblings, but they do it because it`s the more reasonable way to save money.

    the windy, but the people she pays to take care of all that for their kids get paid, and then go home and take care of their own kids.

    oh and the only people on your list of jobs that actually make any money are psychlogists and CEO`s which lets face it, most mothers certainly are not.

    oh, and taking care of somebody elses kids is a hell of a lot harder than taking care of your own. there are a lot more rules. taking care of your kids is not a hard job; Ive done my part in raising my siblings and cousins, and trust me, if it paid enough i would rather do that than anything else.

    Where the hell do you live? Canada`s Bel Air? I can barely afford to put food on my plate ontop of rent and bills, let alone pay someone to wash it after.

    wow, i do not think this is funny at all.
    sure, there are more dangerous jobs, bomb disposal, hostage negotiator....but even they have hours of work and holidays.
    mothers are on call 24 hours a day for at least the first 5 years of each childs life. your job is for life, you are lucky to get breaks, the pay is, well, it`s nil, the benefits? nil, 85% of the time your charges are dispicable tyrants who you cant fire or get away from because it`s your job to love them NO MATTER WHAT they do.you get shat on, puked on, swore at, hit, abused, pissed on, and have to do it all with a smile on your face. sleep? forget it. your body? f ucked for life. your partner? probably useless, likely to leave at some point. it makes you wonder why we do it.
    i hope all you people with mothersdid something nice for yours, i did :)

    emmettyville, must be horrible in australia. for middle class families and up in the US, both parents put a lot of work into the children. only in the lower class (very low) is it common for the father to bolt on the mother and child (sometimes just mother). where we are in time, most fathers seem to pull their own weight in raising children.

    Hee hee, he`s pretty funny!
    I HAVE the most difficult job: Childcare Worker. I take care of 7 kids for other people! I`m not allowed to yell at them or smack them around or nothing!
    (@Garu, you don`t want my job! lolz!)

    @the_windy: if she did all 7 jobs 8 hours a day each day (56 hours a day working that is) she`d make 117K. I`m a childcare worker and I make like 32K... minimum wage is like 18K/year?

    emmettyville, bitter much?

    And with that attitude I kind of understand the "likely to leave at some point" remark. Let me just point out that most of what you said is a gross exaggeration, or at least the point of view of a lazy mom who hates her own kids. You act like loving children is a chore.

    Anyone who complains about motherhood being difficult: it`s 100% OPTIONAL. Don`t complain about the price of abortions or the awkwardness of condoms and then complain that kids ruin your life.

    Well guys and girls, i think i have the perfect solution to this debate. Just remove the job! Stop having kids, they just cost time, money and patience. No benefits, cuz when they moved out the chance is they wont even contact you unless they need something.

    tincel, on the contrary, my mother was amazing (albeit a little violent at times). but mothering wasnt her only career choice. she did what she could while still working 8-10hr days for most of my life. this is why i had to put so much work into raising my siblings. similar reasons led to me helping to raise some of my cousins. parenting isnt as hard as people make it out to be, its the parents` expectations of their kids that makes everything seem more difficult than it needs to be.

    Wrong.

    The quoted costs are usually from insurance companies, who jack the numbers up to sell more life insurance (it would cost <big numbers> to replace their work, so you need <big numbers> insurance!). Those that aren`t from insurance companies have a political agenda, so they usuall just make up big numbers.

    At *best*, the figures are for hiring a trained professional from an agency, so they include agency fees, travelling costs, etc. For example, half an hour making sandwiches and putting stuff in a lunchbox is costed as the price to have an agency send out a pro chef to your house for half an hour, dealing with a grazed knee is costed as the home visit and treatment price for a qualified paediatrician. Etc.

    Bah, I overlooked the other key point, which Evil Eye picked up on. The "a mother`s work is worth <make up your own big number here>" also includes the cost of stuff you`d be doing anyway.

    I just made myself a snack and a drink. So by the argument of the windy and all the others who like the big numbers, I`ve just done work equal to the cost of paying a pro chef to travel to my house and make a meal, plus agency costs.

    Incidentally, the same insurance companies used the same methods to make up big numbers for fathers and men in general. That didn`t get any attention because the results were not in line with prevailing prejudices - the average "value" of the men`s work was higher than that of the women`s.

    Being a mother may not be a most difficult job, but it is the most important job.
    First 7 years in life of a child are the most important and impression made during this period of their lives are strongest and persist their whole life.
    No other impression in rest of their life is as strong as their in first 7 year.So mothers all over the world are basically deciding the personality and psychology of all peoples all over the world.

    parenting is important indeed, parenting failures can bring psychopaths and sociopaths or just douchebags in our society, and some end up on IAB, like Crakrjakass or Oldollie and apparently Angilion.

    HA! Parenting successes can bring these about too. We all mess up our kids. All you can do is hope for a functional crazy.

    Really, if all these arguments are true, being alive is the hardest job of all. I have to wake myself up, I have to feed myself, I have to drag myself to work, work TWO jobs at the same time! And I don`t ever get a break from living. Ever. Its literally a 7 day a week, 24 hour a day job!!

    sweetrebelnc, you appear to have a problem with size recognition, the uretha of a male in comparison to the size of the cervix of a female is alot different in size, and a bowling ball is larger than a new born babies head, it would be a more acurate descriptive comparison if you said golf ball, and even that is bigger in size comparison. My point being, have you heard of a kidney stone? some get to that size (golf ball) and get passed through the uretha. your argument is invalid. having said that. yes being a mother is difficult, but no it isnt a job... SHUT UP OPRAH
